** Description changed:

  [Availability]
  Package is in universe since trusty:
  
  $ rmadison http-parser
-  http-parser | 2.1-2   | trusty/universe | source
-  http-parser | 2.1-2   | xenial/universe | source
-  http-parser | 2.1-2   | artful/universe | source
-  http-parser | 2.7.1-2 | bionic/universe | source
- 
+  http-parser | 2.1-2   | trusty/universe | source
+  http-parser | 2.1-2   | xenial/universe | source
+  http-parser | 2.1-2   | artful/universe | source
+  http-parser | 2.7.1-2 | bionic/universe | source
  
  [Rationale]
+ sssd uses http-parser in its sssd-secrets service [https://docs.pagure.org/SSSD.sssd/design_pages/secrets_service.html], which has a REST API over a unix socket.
+ 
+ The Debian sssd package has the secrets service enabled, and disabling
+ it in the Ubuntu package is part of the delta we carry.
+ 
+ The secrets service can be used as a generic key/value database for
+ secrets, and one of its users is a kerberos KDC via KCM (Kerberos Cache
+ Manager), implemented by sssd-kcm.
+ 
+ sssd-secrets is unix socket activated and won't be running until there
+ is a connection to that socket.
+ 
+ The goal of this MIR is then twofold:
+ a) drop a delta we have with regards to debian
+ b) provide the sssd-secrets service for Ubuntu users
